having a few days at back at spazio leisure resort anjuna , mostly cos of the pool . great little hotel , and price has come down nicely from 4500-10000 at xmas to 2500, cable tv on flatscreen , wifi , great pool and so clean . lounged at the pool for the afternoon .
got some supplies in from anjuna supermarket ‘oxford stores’ . its anjunas best supermarket just by starco junction .
you can get pretty much anything from here from a kettle to groceries and has a bakery part , liquor , and a proper money exchange beureaux . prices are cheap . a lot of ex pats do shopping here . dont forget the buggets lmao
bikes are back to normal after xmas price hikes . back down to 250 now , went back to one id used before xmas and they had me a few nicer bikes too , its called ‘valley of the gods internet cafe’ opposite spazio resort 150m from starco . had one down the road for 200 but it was a bin and had no mirrors ! for the sunset i got on the moped and went to vagator beach
lovely old royal enfield bullet was at teh top of vagator hill. see these things everywhere . like the crows cows and dogs .
on the way back i discovered hilltop vagator had a massive free party on – cool . some deluded clown in britain recently said on trip advisor that “party people should leave goa to the mature people who come to relax” . well tonite it was hill tops 30th anniversary , ie its been going long before that pompous old fart has on his package holiday !
it was literally just opening and it was open mid afternoon thru till closing at midnight . its an outdoor trance club , good venue . big inflatables , lights , lumo trees !
its got a massive bass heavy sound system and dj’s
but once dark it was rammed till the end – thousands of party goers where here including every spaceman in goa !!
drinks where half price for local drinks only . kingfishers went from 200/100 to 100/80 which was reasonable plus free entry . i dont know if they are alawys discounted like that . there where about 6 trance dj’s on , dozens of food stalls and rave tat stalls where along 2 sides of venue , a bar accross a third , and 4th side had the dj and big sound system . this place is absolutely huge and capacity is 3000 people . its just on a hill in vagator ,surrouned by lights and trees .
good things was it was free in/out at hill top , so part way thru the evening went for chicken tikka and garlic naan at ‘sonic’ anjuna north beachfront . 190r half tikka chicken with chips and veg , 50r garlic naan and 190r for a margarita . weather was hot but didnt feel as hot as 4 weeks ago when it hit 37 in mid december .
i dont like trance or listen to it , but it was a good nite .
